Quote quiz

A couple of posts ago, I used the quote "Where HAVE you been!" as the title and left it as an exercise to the reader to guess where it came from.

I only had one taker - gorgeous things said that it sounded like something Katherine Hepburn would say.

But, as much as I love Katherine Hepburn, the quote didn't come from her. (Ever see The Philadelphia Story? If not you should. My husband and I like to occasionally torture our children by belting out a completely out of tune rendition of "Lydia". A movie that stars Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, AND Jimmy Stewart? How can you go wrong?!)

The quote came from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (the movie, not the book). It was said by Molly Weasley after Ron and the twins rescue Harry from his uncle's house.

It goes something like, "Where HAVE you been! Beds empty, no note, car gone! You could have died! You could have been SEEN!!" I might not have it exactly right, I'm going from memory. Love that quote! Love the lady they picked to play Molly; she does an excellent job of it.

Well, I guess I should say something about sewing, as this is supposed to be a sewing blog. Lately, I've been working on View B of Simplicity 3759. I've made one muslin, which didn't turn out as well as I would have liked. But I'm not ready to give up yet, so I'm on to muslin #2.

I can't wait though until I get enough experience behind me to move things along a little more quickly. Sometimes it seems like I'm NEVER going to get done with a project.

See ya next time!
